Renew Communities, as a church plant, has had a great first year. We’ve grown from 20 people to 130 in average attendance. As a new church we are doing a TON of fund-raising for 2012. We have set a budget of $250,000 for 2012 ($100,000 from giving within our church and $150,000 from outside sources).
We have recieved support from churches within the denomination as well as outside of the denomination. In 2011 in terms of UB support we have received support from the denomination and from two UB churches–Colwood (Caro, Mich.) and Mainstreet (Walbridge, Ohio). For 2012, we have commitments from the denomination, those two churches, and two additional UB churches: Pathway Church (Jackson, Mich.) and Prince Street (Shippensburg, Pa.). If you or your church would be willing to support us, send me a note.
